So it seems only natural that Seeger released an album of guitar instruction, The Folksinger’s Guitar Guide, addressed to both beginners and more advanced players. I guess any musical instrument can be as hard to play as you want to make it, Seeger begins, in one of his characteristically fluid transitions from song to speech: If you wanted to be a person like Andres Segovia or Merle Travis, why it would take a lifetime of training. Like the great educator he was, Seeger also includes some helpful visual aids in the album’s liner notes (see them here), including drawings of chord fingerings, musical notation, and guitar tablature for those who don’t read music. In addition to his readable instructions, he also includes the lyrics to all of the folk songs referenced throughout. Practice each small section over and over, he writes in his introduction, until it comes easy.

Having previously offered instruction in how to play the five-string banjo, Pete Seeger here provides the basics on playing guitar for folksingers. The basics are very basic, he explains, noting that, while playing a musical instrument can be as difficult to learn as one makes it, the simplest lessons are so simple that they are like walking, keeping in mind that a child takes years to learn to walk. That said, Seeger gets the listener playing songs after learning only one chord and, along with two more chords, notes that now "you can play most of the folk songs you know.
